    I'm a retired veteran when I see Wall St. controlling K Street and lobbyist controlling the We the Peoples Government. It no longer belongs to anyone but the Oligarchy. I kneel beside Colin Kaepernick. We the people didn't dishonor the flag. You did 45. Power to the People. All the People.

    Trump made Kapernick's peaceful protest about the American flag to steer the national conversation away from police brutality by cops against the black community. Kapernick has unfairly been blacklisted from the NFL.

    My Country" We feel that racism and sexism and class separation That these are desecrations And we feel that the American flag does not represent Integrity, honor, justice or truth My country 'tis of thee Sweet land of poverty For thee I weep Land where my mother cried Land where my father died Sweet land of genocide Pride of my heart My country 'tis of thee Sweet land of industry We'll break your back Clean out your minerals Fill you with chemicals We kill for what is profitable Oh concrete world Our climate's suffering All nature feels the sting Poisoned progress All of these mouths to feed All of this land to seed From sea to shining sea Gold underground Our people left to die Battlefield country-side Paved-over graves Suburban privileges make desolate villages Broken treaties, Broken promises Conquer, repeat All warriors represent Remind those who forget The time is now To walk in humble pride Prepare and fortify Resist comforts of compromise Pray for guidance

    My issue with this is that Kaepernick kneels for "black injustice" not "racial injustice". It's always one race group singled out, it's always just one race group that is marketed into headlines.. NO other race makes headlines when shot by officials - that is injustice in mind. Further I have never seen Kaepernick kneel for veterans... But what this veteran is talking about is very true, vets need more help.

    If all Black players (and non Black) had been kneeling , NFL and others would have had to do something .

    Trump is not a president but a dictator, gently speaking It was fun watching Donald Trump actions. It was fun for a while. But he must be stopped. Enough lies. Enough crime, not only in the US, but in Europe too. Its over time for a revolution. Military must stop this dictator and the family members. Military must step in now and must restore law and order. Now. His actions are a war crime of inhumanity.
